MEET OUR ACCIDENTS LAWYERS IN DALLAS, TX
We all hear stories about someone, who knew of someone, who had an accident on the job. While that may not be an everyday happening, accidents can happen anywhere at any time. Everyone hears about the car accidents in dallas, but accidents can happen while you are shopping at Whole Foods or walking down the stairs at work. So, what do you do when an accident happens at work or in a public place? It’s not like there is a shopper’s insurance that takes your claim if you fall down the stairs at a store like there would be if you had a car accident.
Accidents by Profession
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, work-related accidents led to approximately 4,405 fatal injuries in 2012. Many might assume that the majority of job related accidents happen in jobs that are labor intensive. However, 41 percent of all fatal work-related accidents take place while traveling. This not only includes accidents for jobs in the private sector, but also accidents in professions within public sectors that require travel by planes and automobiles. According to studies, mentioned in the article America’s 10 Deadliest Jobs, 92 percent of these accidents are experienced by men and 8 percent are experienced by women. This being said, a construction worker may be at high risk of a work-related accident, but the cleaning lady moping the floor or the executive in the limo may also face the risks of a work-related accident.
Fortunately, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) helps prevent work related accidents by enforcing specific safety regulations. No one is ever 100 percent risk free when it comes to accidents, but when companies fail to meet OSHA’s regulations workers increase their chances of being involved in an accident. This is when consulting an accident lawyer in Dallas is important. When a person is involved in a work related accident, it’s important to receive the medical attention needed, but it’s also important to notify the right people as soon as possible. Our accident attorney Dallas can guide individuals and make sure the workers are taking the appropriate actions regarding the accident.
